This unique spot is located in the city’s heart and is perfect for all ages. I have photographed many of my clients’ birthday parties here; they are always fun. If you have more adults than kids, this is the perfect spot for your celebration. Your celebration packages include rides on the carousel, playground access, and mini golf tickets. As a bonus, you can bring your own food and drinks.

Located at 1301 Locust Street in Philadelphia, the Nest offers birthday parties for kids of all ages in a great space. We always loved that they provided us with a party host who played and entertained the kids. In addition, the Nest offers a variety of party themes and packages, and you can customise your party.

Pack your socks for this fun party space! Located at 1241 N. Front Street, parties at Play Arts offer a kid-focused play space with packages and activities to fit your needs. In addition to your private space, all your guests have access to the indoor play space. One of our favorite features is the flexibility to bring your own food or to use one of their partnered catering companies.

This playground really needs no introduction. It’s a blast on any day of the week. But if you are looking for a fun event space, this spot is sure to please your crowd of all ages. The party space is only available from April through September, so it’s perfect for those spring and summer parties. Your two-hour event includes access to the indoor and outdoor play space. Are you looking to rent a tent? Sure, they can offer those services as well. They offer several packages with lots of options. The wood slide is our favorite; you’re always young for a good one.

Nestled in the middle of the city of Philadelphia, this little spot is perfect for summer birthday celebrations. From toddlers to elementary school-aged, my clients use this sweet little spot for their children’s birthdays, from toddlers to older children. The park offers a garden for kids with a wading pool in the hot months and an interactive play area in the cooler months. In addition to the fun space, their party packages come with pizza or hotdog options. We have always loved sitting on the grass under the large tree surrounded by the beautiful city views.
